You’ve heard Andrew McMahon before, but not like this. Best known as lead vocalist, pianist and primary songwriter for Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate, McMahon is now touring in support of the self-titled debut album released under his solo banner, Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness. He’s bringing the show to Emo’s on Monday, November 24th with Fences and Junior Prom.
We’re convinced that Andrew McMahon could release music under any alias and fans would flock to hear it. After releasing three albums as Jack’s Mannequin he needed a change of pace, and that’s when Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness came to be. During a recent interview with Billboard, the singer/song writer expressed that “there were a lot of signs in the making of the last Jack’s record that told me it was time to move on.”
With a new child on the way it was time to enter a new chapter of his life, and in fact his newborn daughter, Cecilia, inspired this album’s hit track “Cecilia and the Satellite”.
Joining him at Emo’s will be the Seattle-based indie rock project, Fences, headed by Christopher Mansfield. In early 2011, Fences toured with Against Me! and later that year toured with Hellogoodbye. Recently collaborating with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis on “Otherside” (Remix), Mansfield also co-wrote “10,000 Hours” from Macklemore’s album, The Heist, along with the vocals of bassist band mate, Lindsey Starr.
Brooklyn-based duo, Junior Prom will also be opening on Monday night, after recently releasing their debut EP, “Cheap Thrills” in February. They are now working on their debut LP, Elektra Records, which is due to be released sometime next year. Be sure to check out all of these guys at Emo’s, Monday November 24th!
